Ascot Racecourse Creates Christmas ‘Foursie’ for Shetland Pony, Daffy, to Celebrate Christmas Racing Weekend
Today we unveiled a festive ‘foursie’ – a seasonal onesie that is tailor-made for Shetland pony, Daffy, to help him keep warm this Christmas. We are encouraging race goers to follow Daffy’s lead and don their festive finery for the upcoming Christmas Racing Weekend on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th December.
Daffy enjoys his new festive 'foursie'
Jackie Rowberry, Animal Trainer at Animal Dramatics, who owns Daffy, said: “In winter I always worry about Daffy getting chilly as he likes to spend so much time out of his stable.
"I love the fact that Ascot has created a special foursie for Daffy so that he can get into the Christmas spirit. He’s loved all the attention and is quite the envy among his stable buddies!”
Nick Smith, Head of Communication and International Racing at Ascot Racecourse, adds: “We wanted to do something fun and festive to mark the upcoming Christmas Racing Weekend which is always a great occasion. Racegoers often turn out in their Christmas outfits and we raise a lot of money for local charities too.”
Tickets for the Christmas Racing Weekend start from £15 for Grandstand Admission and £20 for Premier Admission on Friday 18th December and £21 for Grandstand Admission on Saturday 19th December. Premier Admission on Saturday 19th December has sold out. Entry is free for accompanied children under 18 years of age.
